Tiny Homes That Make a Case for Going Small

There is an architectural and social shift in modern lifestyle that is moving towards minimalism, momentum, and sustainability. Worldwide, people are constructing or buying homes with a mentality of functional simplification, and more often than not, are completely off-the-grid.

Building a home equipped with solar panels, self-sufficient water supplies, compost lavatories, and battery powered appliances greatly reduces your carbon footprint, making a profound impact on the environment. As well as contributing to the Green-Living community, Tiny Home owners generally cut building costs in half by using recycled, re-purposed, and salvaged materials.

Tiny Home owners experience financial and emotional liberation, without a mortgage or other bills due monthly. At a fraction of the cost of building or buying a traditional house, you can design your dream home, and oftentimes can hook it up to a trailer to keep a nomadic momentum. Since most Tiny Homes are portable, you are not tied to a property and have the freedom and flexibility to change jobs, escape unfriendly neighbors, or explore new territory as often as you wish.

Tiny Homes are excellent for millennials, whose college loans have put traditional houses out of reach, retiring baby boomers looking for affordable homes with minimal maintenance, or traditional homeowners who are building Tiny Houses on their properties to shelter guests, family members or caregivers. With the benefits a clean, clutter-free, less-is-more existence, Tiny Home owners are able to live with lightness of Being, with emotional stability that paves the way for venturing down new avenues of life.

Enjoy this breathtaking collection of our favorite Tiny Homes!
